“I look forward to a great future for America – a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose.”
– John F. Kennedy
This is my last opportunity to continue our conversation as one of your officers. I do have to say that the past three years have been some of the best years of my life – they have been nothing short of a crusade. A crusade that has focused on the fundamental truth that every American deserves physician-led anesthetic care. Within the sphere of the above truth are myriad transformative issues that threaten to erode the commitment we have to our patients to ensure the highest-quality, safest and most cost-effective perioperative care.
